Evoplay's Monster Lab is a five reel fantasy slot with 20 paylines. The theme centres on a purple octopus-like scientist who is experimenting in his lab and creating all sorts of monsters by activating a series of cloning tubes on each spin.

Winnings come from aligning the monsters from left to right in groups of three or more. Scatters will pay off regardless of their position on the grid and, when activated, they will trigger the free spin mode. Three will get you fifteen free spins, while four and five will lead to 20 and 25 more spins respectively. At the end of the free spin fest, you'll get the chance to double your winnings, triple them, or get another 20 free spins. Not at all bad is it?

A funny mad pig-bull monster will trigger the generous bonus game when three or more of them appear during the regular game in any order.

Players Review

The time has come to clone some DNA's at random and see what comes out. From a brown Pig-Bull to a scary one-eyed worm, Monster Lab wants to help us shape the future of our zoos! Don't think about adopting them - they're as ugly as they come!

Despite their looks, these guys are pretty generous. Evoplay came up with this underground laboratory, in which a mad scientist is eager to show us the money. A cool set-up, lots of obscure characters, and a rewarding bonus experience convinced me to like this game immensely. Although extremely rare, you can multiply your bet 5,000 times.

The chances are high that after 120 to 180 spins, you'll have triggered the free-spin mode by collecting three or more scatters. Prizes keep coming in for free during this round, and at the end, you'll have to choose between three options that will either double or triple your bet and if you get really lucky -  20 more free spins. After a second round, that’s where the free spins end.

Honestly, I would have liked to see another bonus feature included, if only to keep things more interesting, but the game is fun to play, no doubt about it. A unique slot with great visuals and an entertaining plot -  loved it!
